It was this incident that made the rivalry between these two NHL teams more intense.

However, everything changed on July 5, 2013 when former Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson decided to leave the team and sign with the Red Wings. Aside from leaving the Senators, the long-time captain of the team also said that his new team has a better chance of winning the Stanley Cup this season.
